JOINT COORDINATING ORGANIZATION
This chart shows the relationships among the
Office of the Secretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics),
the Senior Acquisition Executives in each Service, and the ATS Management Board representatives from each service.
at the Naval Air Systems Command serves as the ATS Executive Directorate and coordinates all
ATS matters throughout the DoD.
The ATS Executive Directorate has established several technical Integrated Process Teams. By
way of example, one of the IPTs is the Test Program Set Standardization (TPSS) IPT. The TPSS IPT has members from the Air
Force, Army, Marine Corps and Navy. Its mission is to identify aspects of the TPS procurement process that can be
standardized in the acquisition process and in the technical requirements of the TPS themselves, propose appropriate
standardization measures that comply with acquisition reform to realize these opportunities across DoD, identify and analyze
existing methods and processes which offer opportunities and identify obstacles to implementing TPS technical and acquisition
process standardization, and report to the AMB on providing alternatives to obstacles, and provide recommendations for
standardization of technical requirements and acquisition process.
The TPSS IPT completed a major project with the publication on 10 January 2012 of
MIL-PRF-32070A, Performance Specification, Test Program Sets. The specification supersedes the original MIL-PRF-32070
and should be used in the acquisition of new Test Program Sets.
